QUESTIONS

  • My girlfriend works for Maricopa County. A co worker is on FMLA and has excused/FMLA absenses at least 6 hours weekley. This employee was assigned overtime that the other eligable employees believe should be offered to them. Can a full time employee that is currently on FMLA work overtime?
  • My renter has missed 2 months rent and has said in writing that she will be out by the 1st of next month. She has not been truthful with me on many other issues so I can not b sure. Should I proceed with an eviction notice? If so how long does eviction take? Please advise. Thanks
  • I would like my fiance to adopt my children. I do have sole custody of my children. Do I still need permission from the father?
  • I'm searching for A.R.S. 10.116011 through 10.116013 and am unable to find them. Are these statutes still in effect?
  • I sent my July rent on the 30th of June, the 8th my landlord tells me am late and to send rent and late fees. I sent him an email telling him I had sent it since the 30th, no response. I sent him another one saying that I will resend the check again, no response either. apparently he hasn't receive the new check either. Becouse it hasn't cleared. I asked him if he had gotten it and he said he would check and get back to me but no answer yet. I have no returned mail. Is it possible he wants to evict me?
  • My younger cousin who calls me aunt has been arrested And cps has gotten involved. Although her daughter has already been living here for 6 months they say I need guardianship of the child and need it by the next day or they will have no choice but to take guardianship of her while they say she can still live with me. My question is would it be easier to get the child's mother (and legal ) to sign over guardianship or to go through the courts which is going to cost me 350$ and will take weeks to get a court date?
  • We were paying our electricity through our apartment complex. They would bill it to us each month with our rent with a 50 dollar service fee. Last month they didn't bill us for it and it wasn't in our bill, so we were waiting until they gave us the bill or it was just added on to next months payment and/or rent. They did add it on to the next months rent/bill and we usually pay the 3rd if every month which isn't late. They turned off our power without any notice AT ALL on the second. They didn't give any warning what so ever. Is that legal?!
  • My husband currently lives with me, and our 2 daughters. He has barely been paying anything toward bills and rent and recently there have been some domestic violence issues also. Can I file for child support even though he is currently living in my home?
  • I have sole custody of my children and want to move out of state. Can my kids father stop me from moving with my children?
  • My question is if someone who has bedbugs dies can the landlord keep their deposit
